Norcross, GA – November 14, 2017 – Mighty Distributing System is pleased to announce that STC Management, LLC has become the latest Jiffy Lube group to acquire a Mighty Auto Parts franchise. STC Management, owned by Chris Burns, Gene Turnelle, Brad Turnelle and Glenn Sanders, operates 18 Jiffy Lube locations throughout the Greater Washington D.C. area. A past Jiffy Lube Franchisee of the Year, STC Management is the eighth Jiffy Lube group to add a Mighty franchise to their company portfolio.
Mighty Distributing System is a Georgia-based franchisor with a network of distributors that supply preventive maintenance products and inventory management solutions to automotive service providers (tire dealers, quick lubes, independent shops, car dealerships and fleets). Through this new partnership, STC becomes their own parts supplier by implementing Mighty’s streamlined product programs, inventory management expertise, and ongoing training.
“We experimented with distribution models before, but they lacked the program support and strength that comes with Mighty. On top of Mighty’s robust programs, integrating a wholesale Mighty division with our Jiffy Lube organization came highly recommended by other large-scale Jiffy Lube operators,” said Chris Burns.
Burns continued: “Mighty provides top-shelf product programs and tools necessary for us to gain control of our internal supply needs, as well as the ability to develop new revenue streams through outside sales within our territory. It is truly a Win-Win for our organization!“
“We are incredibly proud to partner with the team at STC Management, and add another high-caliber Jiffy Lube-affiliated distributor to our franchise System,” said Ken Voelker, Mighty Auto Parts President & CEO. “We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with STC and our other valued Jiffy Lube affiliated partners.”
